A wrongful death case results upon the death of a loved one, usually due to the negligence, carelessness or recklessness of another person, employee of a business, or product, such as an uncrashworthy automobile. A wrongful death case may arise from a motor vehicle accident, work accident, assault, failure to properly care for a child or disabled person, product defect, unsafe premises, medical malpractice and many other causes.
The loss of a loved one due to the wrongful act of others typically creates intense and painful emotions for family members. In addition, often times there are economic damages caused by the wrongful death of a loved one, such as losses of income, support, services of value, medical bills, and funeral expenses.
It is important that attorneys litigating such cases not only be well versed in the law, but they should also be thoroughly familiar with the psychological injuries that family members may experience, as well as the economic losses that the wrongful death has caused.
